is to embarrass the administration, to destroy the energy of government, and to substitute the pleasure of an insignificant turbulent or corrupt hunta to the regular deliberations and decisions of a respectable majority. does any of that sound familiar, kind of like what we have been seeing in recent years maybe? the founders by the way also opposed political parties. they didn't want them. they couldn't have foreseen how highly disciplined parties would subvert and remake the system they designed and use rules like the filibuster that didn't even, exist back then to what is the line, destroy the energy of government and substitute the pleasure, caprice to the regular decisions of the respectable majority. i love alexander hamilton. forcing senators to talk when the filibuster doesn't do anything about that problem, and that means it doesn't do anything about the central problem that keeps real majority from governing today. we can't have a political system in which even when the american people vote twice in a row to give one party the power to pursue its agenda, the minority is still

, the energy boom, conventional energy boom going on. there's a lot to expect in 2013. assuming politicians don't take us over the fiscal cliff, this economy looks like it's gaining rather than losing momentum going into 2013. >> that's good. you see that housing has turned a corner. >> yeah. >> but then look overseas. all the possibilities of fiscal cliffdom over there. >> yeah, multiple cliffs. actually, britain's not involved in this, interestingly. the sovereign debt crisis there is being worked out slowly, painfully, if they did go through a shock where greek suddenly exited the eurozone or we had spain or italy default, that would be a major game-changer because it would really impair european banks and touch off another financial crisis. that does not seem to be on the horizon. china, which was experiencing something of a hard landing earlier this year is now starting to stimulate its economy again. and looks like china and the u.s. can be barbells in a kind of two-pronged advance in the economy next year. so i think there is reason to be optimistic. people are far too downbeat at this p
initiatives, the one i think about is climate change and energy legislation. we see some consensus on fiscal issues and some on immigration. what i wonder about is the climate and energy stuff when you still have a house of representatives where a lot of people just don't believe in global warming. i don't know how you get to a deal on that. >> let me pick up on that. you mentioned climate change and the dream act. of course the democrats and president obama had a majority on the dream act and passed it in the house. it was only that it was filibustered, right? so when does that fury over a system that gives you majorities but not legislation, when does that get into this mix? >> i'm not sure that abates. the animus that drove the hostility and resistance of the president is still present. look at the laundry list john mccain gave you. immigration reform and abortion. yeah, you got that black vote on lock, don't you. and look, because they want to continue tone gauge in voter suppression. now let me just put that on the table. the reason african-american people are not seen as a likely vote
energy, clean energy. i think he sees that as a big job booster. and he has said that that's a huge problem facing not only the political parties but the planet. and so i think i he's got to r a lot to do. >> where is the tipping point for greatness, and might it just be the evolution and rolling out of the affordable health care act? when you think about legacy, is that enough? >> that could be one element of it and that could be a part of the lar injury picture that he sees and helping americans cope with this new economic environment he talked about this a lot during his campaign and some of it is job restraining and making jobs more oi fordable. that seems to be the key. these $40,000 a year jobs out of high school are disappearing. you need a secondary education and i think this is something that he would like to expand on. >> sorry. to expand back to your original question, if you talk about legacy, it's small and incremental but ten years from now you can say, that's really important. >> absolutely good to see you both. thank you. >>> the fragile cease fire between israel and

worth having and it wasn't clear the republicans, there really was this type of energy if you will in the republican conference on the senate side to do something like that. then secondly on the merits and this is what bill crystal was hinting at. bill crystal, neoconservative if you will and interventionist and there is certainly a big chunk of senate republicans that put themselves in that respect. if you take a look at the philosophical differences, that's why he ends upsiding on the susan rice, much more interventionist if you will than a john kerry. john kerry, somebody that has a history of voting against intervening and i think suddenly a lot of these guys said wait a minute we can have a benghazi proxy fight in another avenue, maybe if these are the two choices we'll line up susan rice, not john kerry. >> go to the treasury department. suggesting that replacing tim geithner with a woman would help break up the old boys wall street club. there are the ladies on the long list, christina romer, laura tyson, janet yellen. what are you hearing about who could be rising to t
of think now what is our role in the coming years if we can't -- if we can't use all of our energy and affect a change here. >> fox is a propaganda machine. >> joe, i want to be fair, there was one voice over there that tried to make a little sense and that was late in the campaign, was geraldo rivera. listen to what geraldo said. >> i think we have to stop politicizing. we're getting away from the real issue, which is, why wasn't there security before this happened? because that's the issue. but these preposterous allegations, reckless allegations -- do weapon want to know what happened? do we want to try and influence the election with a tragedy that happened in north africa? >> and they were fighting him there and then geraldo tweeted on october 31st, gop bloodlust regarding benghazigate insincere deperate and reminiscent of fast and furious petraeus lie-new rule if issa in charge truth not the goal. >> thank god that geraldo has come to the point where he is willing to speak truth to power because they have the power of his paycheck. let's be honest about it. and that -- thomas
to draft the support from his reelection, trying to draft the energy and the technical information he has about his supporters to help him get his agenda brought across, is there anybody who has laid out a template for that? does that fit into this pattern? >> that's very smart. often times presidents will say i just got this big landslide and anyone in congress who opposes me, i'll go back to their district or state and campaign against them. they wind up not often doing it. the obama campaign twice now has been one of the most effective campaign operations in american history. it's going to be fascinating if we can see for the first time him using that on behalf of the things he wants done. >> we have seen the president telegraph that he's working on the tax issue. we're also seeing signs that this susan rice nomination for secretary of state, which john mccain had essentially picked a fight over and said if you do this i will do anything in my power to block that. he's moderated his position somewhat, but there's the issue of having to refill a cabinet, staff positions for a second ter
. the president's team wants to use that energy in the current fiscal cliff debate. quote, mr. obama's aides are trying to harness the passions that returned him to the white house hoping to pressure republicans in congress to accept tax increases on the wealthy. joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com. she's at least as smart as i am, which is not an accolade, it's a fact, and she's much younger. okay. we found out this weekend, and you know this better than i, i enjoy your report on this, the obama campaign wasn't some kumbaya number. it was an incredibly organized machine. it was real, it was people meeting people, getting points for how many contacts you made with voters. they knew a certain number of contacts led to a probability of people voting. incredibly hands-on, real people with other people. can you turn that machine into something that can get the right kind of deal? >> i think the president spent a year and a half developing a gigantic infrastructure that really came out on election day. and he did that -- >> human. >> through these kinds of direct contacts, but he also had
their pants and hop on a bike to promote alternative energy and our dependence on standard issue underpants. but never before have their be naked protests in congress. today, the long worth congress building protesting spending cuts on the far side of the fiscal cliff and what that would mean for aids funding specifically, there was a nude awakening. aids protesters march iing into house speaker john boehner's office to give him the naked truth. boehner, boehner, don't be a sick. budget cuts will make us sick. the budget cuts are really rude, that's why we have to be so lewd. they were trying to lay bare the potential cuts for aids, the protests also served to put a naked spotlight on a major statement expected tomorrow from secretary of state hillary clinton. on the occasion of world aids day, secretary clinton is due to unveil an aids free generation. secretary clinton will make that announcement on thursday morning, but in advance of that renewed commitment to fighting aids, this group, which is known for memorable protests any way, found a way to be more memorable today. one of the grou
with a shellacking. the last was wasting time and energy early on in his negotiation. and trying to negotiate with republicans when there was a stalemate. having learned from these mistakes the president has bypassed the stalemated congress and taken it to the people. here he was relying on his electoral connection. we saw a hint of this in his election night speech where he said the role of citizens in a democracy does not end with voting. that you have to stay active in pushing on the policies you need. so, we saw the hint, so we shouldn't be surprised he's taking the show on the road. >> when we look at the fact american people support his proposals, 72% say the gop should compromise, 67% on a mix of spending cuts and tax increases, 56% say we should raise tax on the wealthy. him going on the road is, what, to energize this and not leave it in washington like what was done before? is he learning from his mistakes of last time around? >> yeah, i think that's right. this is about learning. and this is -- he's basically undoing what he did wrong in the selling of obama care. he merely assumed
issues in the world, and we are consuming our time and the energy and the viewers' even attention to be focus odd exactly the words. they said terrorist attack. it's enough. we should move forward and focus on the major issues taking place in that moment that are connected to our future and the security of this nation. libya, remember, today we found there was weapons coming. >> correct. >> and they were intercepted and they came from libya. it's still an open box and it's still -- there's a lot of questions about the libyan ability to control the various group that are operating in this moment. >> mm-hmm. >> we need to handle them differently. smart policy, less attacks, talk less, and more actions. >> my power panel for this wednesday, thanks so much. i really appreciate it. have a great holiday to all of you. >>> fwhak the arena, general jon allen back to afghanistan in kabul after being investigated for inappropriate e-mails with a woman linked to the petraeus scandal. could the general return to work too? >>> plus, what a roller coaster ride for the twinkie this week. from go
are going up, your religion is going to come under attack. gas, coal, and energy is going to become more expensive. may i highly suggest you get grandfathered in to the second amendment today. >> how do you handle that kind of talk? >> first of all, if your aunt's name really is hilda, you got to be extra compassionate toward her, because she's had a rough life, because her name is hilda, and that's just, you know, even if she had a great life, she had to deal with some things that most of us never have to go through. so empathize with her. if she's listening to glenn beck, that's amazing. i didn't know he was still out there talking. i haven't heard for him in quite some time. it's been good. if she's worried about the zombie apocalypse, you could prime her for it, show her some "walking dead," later some "28 days," and maybe some "resident evil." saying, this has come long before obama's time, these tough situations we've had to deal with. when the zombie apocalypse does come, it's going to be because of science, some rogue scientist in a lab. and obama's more pro-scientist, allowing s
program and we had enough oversight from the international atomic energy agency and others to know that it was not easily transformed into a weapons program? >> well, if there is a proposal, that's what it will get down to because there is a view among many people that if some enrichment is not allowed, there is no deal that iran could accept. there are many americans who believe that there is no kind of oversight of an ongoing enrichment program that doesn't allow iran to move closer towards a nuclear weapon. so that will be the debate within the united states. and the question really is does the proposal that comes out of that debate one that the iranians could accept? if not, then the question is where are we? and many people would say we've set the table for use of force if we need to do it. if the iranians continue, as they have been, moving along towards developing their nuclear program. and the challenge, of course, for any military option is it needs to leave you in a position where you're more able to prevent iran getting a nuclear weapon, not less able to prevent iran fro
the consulate and then what happened afterwards. and i think that's where we should be focusing our energy. i think that, look, if the president chooses to nominate her to be secretary of state, she's very well qualified. she should be able to receive a fair hearing from in the senate. and i hope she gets that because she's done a great service for this country over the course of the last four years. >> one thing i want to show to everybody is that a new cnn poll out shows a majority of americans believe that the white house misstatements were based on the best information that officials had at the time. 40% say there was no cover-up. so jonathan, does this meeting give the senators, you know, because of that? and we look at this poll, i mean how american people feel about this. does this meeting give the senators basically new ground to move forward on to try to discredit or try to claim that there's some type of deeper cover-up that went on prior to the election? >> well, looking at those results, it was -- it would seem to me that, you know, the senators took a big risk here because the ma
society, whether that's education or tax reform or energy reform to make it a more just and equitable society. >> as a tactical move it works onnerly re lly -- every level f. it works on bipartisan strategy, we all agree on this and start there. it takes something off the table before the harder stuff gets discussed. depriving as governor rendell the other side of its main leverage. so on all of those levels it works for him and it accomplishes what he wants to, which is to level the playing field in terms of income inequality. >> governor, we're going to have senator patty murray on the show in just a few minutes. in terms of getting this done, what do you think the president needs at this point? does he have all the arrows that he needs to get the tax cuts extended for the middle class and to expire for the upper income? >> he does if he's willing to use them. the part of this, the danger in this appeal, is that sometimes the president's going to have to go back to the same people that he's gining up here and saying you're going to take it a hit. the only way we will get this done.
